I want to turn my iPad into a remote, and all the apps I've found, you have to buy hardware for it. I was wondering if there is a free app that doesn't need hardware?

I assume by that you want the iPad to control things like home theater receivers, TVs, and dvrs? I don't think there is such a beast. All of the devices I am familiar with require a piece of hardware to convert codes generated on the iPad into infrared codes the equipment understands.
